Have you been stumbling over wall decals recently, but are just not sure whether they are right for you? Or are you on the hunt for inspiration beyond the generic “live, laugh, love” designs?
In this article, we will show you how versatile wall decals and stickers are and why they are perfect for a quick and effective home makeover.
Before we jump into the many reasons why you should try out wall decals, let us have a brief look at the terms used to refer to wall decals and stickers.
Stickers and decals: What is the difference?
The sticker universe can be confusing at times: stickers, graphics, labels, decals – but what is the difference? The answer is, there is no fundamental difference between these terms. They all refer to pieces of paper or plastic with an adhesive back.
It can, however, be helpful to keep in mind, why sticker printers make these distinctions. Sticker are individually cut, while labels arrive on sheets. Through that, labels are easier and faster to peel, perfect for product labels. Decals are individually cut like stickers, but are usually larger, which is why wall stickers are also often referred to as decals.
Other than standard vinyl stickers, wall stickers and decals are not printed. Instead, they are cut from a piece of vinyl. They are then “weeded”. This means the vinyl around the cut will be removed, leaving your design. This means, every individual piece of your design can be peeled.
Wall decals and stickers do not have a background, but each element can be applied individually. Other vinyl stickers can be used to create a similar effect, like transparent stickers for example, as their see-through background blends in with any surface. Wall decals, on the other hand, come with a transfer tape on top of your design. This holds the individual pieces together and makes their application easier.
Now that we have covered the terminology, let us look at why exactly wall decals can be your secret interior design weapon.
Create immediate effects
All you have to do when your wall decals arrive is apply them. It is one of the easier interior design trends and will create an immediate effect.
You do not need to spend hours learning how to apply them or buy special glue. This will save you a lot of time and frustration while still ensuring a great end result.
Leave your mark without leaving a mark
Wall decals are made to stick, yet will not leave any adhesive residue when you want to remove them, making them perfect for rented spaces. You can check out these tips on how to remove the stickers from StickerYou.

Using custom wall stickers also means that you will not be stuck with generic designs. Instead, you can choose or create your own design to really get your personality on your walls.
Low-cost makeover option
In general, vinyl stickers are a low-cost option. You will usually only be charged for the material used. This makes wall decals perfect for a home makeover on a budget while not skipping that amazing effect.
